PTB : 24 Loving Our Fallen Away Family Members back to Church

ERIC HASELHORST, carrie gress

Loving our fallen away family members back to church

I found Carrie by complete accident via an email list I subscribe to. Her book title Nudging Conversions sounds interesting so I followed the link and quickly decided to invite her on the podcast. Most places I go it is not uncommon to find someone who has a loved one away from the church and they long for that person to come back. But how?! Carrie does a marvelous job explaining how we can love our family back to the faith with our having to "sell" them the faith. It is a beautiful conversation and life giving. Enjoy.

MORE SPECIFICALLY, IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • Agony and pain is common with fallen away family members, but it doesn't have to be
  • Rather than change our family members, we can change ourselves
  • Telemarketing approach to helping our family members back to the faith doesn't work
  • Before evangelizing ask "How's my prayer life"
  • Evangelization does not have to be about confrontation
  • Questions can be powerful conversion tools
  • God loves fallen away Catholics more that we do
